What’s driving the ‘Driven’ approaches in software development?

Home > What’s driving the ‘Driven’ approaches in software development?

A buddy of mine, Andy Glover, recently sent me a link to an SDTimes article (see page 3) which asks the question “are there real differences between methodologies, or is it just marketing?”. The article by Jennifer DeJong is pretty good but the pleasantly surprising part was that she picked my “Resume-driven Development” post. She wrote:

Another variant of the “driven” theme is resume-driven development, or RDD. RDD is all about choosing a language not because it’s well suited to a particular project, but because acquiring skills in that language will help a developer bolster his or her resume. “I’ve seen it many, many times,” said Netspective CEO Shahid Shah, who coined the term RDD in a blog entry earlier this year. “Resume driven development tactics [let developers] pad their resumes so that their next job is easier to get.”

Glad to see that the general development press is reading healthcare blogs, too.
